【The Varieties of Karma】– Always think we are right
Therefore, when people of the ancient times trained in the teachings, ah, absolutely, they would focus all of their attention on it, they would certainly devote all of their attention into it. For instance, as we first begin to uphold ethical discipline, our minds are leisurely adrift. Yet we all feel, "Ah, [we] seem to be doing pretty good!" Actually, you have no idea how far you have strayed, this is a point that we should have an accurate understanding of. I will just bring this up now for heads-up, when we formally instruct later, [you will see that] the key to real cultivation is right here. Normally when we speak, we always feel that we are correct, [but] you don't know how wrong you are. The moment your attitude of diligence, your thought of keeping vigilance has been lost, the moment you lose track of your thought, this is the root for becoming careless, you are already wrong, like this! Thus naturally, this habit since beginningless time [will] surface easily at certain encounters. The boundary of senseless speech is very very vast, we have to specially take note of this!
